strings. >> a lot to talk about with david gergen, chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and dana bash. jessica, we heard the president make this a promise that it's going to become more transparent. he says it was already happening before the snowden leaks. but is that really realistic? >> well, as you point out, wolf, he did say that he wanted more transparency back in may. he said that. that was right before edward snowden's first leak was in june. so his assertion is that the snowden leaks just sped up a process that was going to happen any way. well, we also have to take a bigger look at the big picture, which is did snowden actually lead to these new safeguards he put in place? we know that two democratic senators have been calling for more transparency and even reforms for more than a year now. sn when the head of the intelligence community went before congress, he's admitted now that he was less than truthful in talking about them. so that was all before snowden. would this have happened without snowden? we can't know, the train has left the station, but it does seem to ha
is on board. what about the other students and their privacy. here with us dana lash, lesley marshall. >> what do we do with the 7-year-old girl who goes into the locker room and there's a 14-year-old boy naked in the locker room because that's where he chooses to be. >> first of all, i don't remember 7 and 14-year-olds being together. but i don't disagree with you on that. >> okay, well, the 10-year-old girl. >> yes, i get it. >> the 10-year-old girl and the 12-year-old boy. >> like i said, i don't envy the governor's having to be in this position to make this decision. and the reason is, although there have been adopted policies in four states, massachusetts, et cetera, in california. this legislation was signed into law by the governor to help reduce the bullying by these transgender children. i'm not sure -- >> well, forget about -- >> i'm not sure what they've done here -- >> .00001%. >> i don't know what kind of crazy world we live in when we decide that the best way to stop bullying is to pass a law where we introduce opposite members of the opposite sex into opposite locker rooms. you'
completely different in the nsa -- >> but he said it so well. >> day in a, talk about -- dana, what do you think of his remarks? did it come too late? he covered a lot of ground. >> okay. i think it was three weeks too late. i would have said that he should have done this press conference about three weeks ago because when he said that all of these things in washington were phony scandals, one of them that he's talking about is the nsa issue. i have defended the president on all this and i keep asking, could you help us defend you. he did something today, he made very clear he's gog have four-point plan and talked about the four-point plan. it's amazing when you have unemployment at what it is, the part-time jobs issue, he wants to talk about the middle class and he's talking about section 215 of the patriot act? we are down way, way, way down in the weeds. i think again, he could have done it three weeks ago. i would have said he should have done more about the middle class up at the top. i don't think the announcement needed to be about this. >> before he got smacked around by the presid
, as opposed to the nsa surveillance program. dana, what is the reaction on capitol hill? i know the lawmakers are in recess, on vacation, the president is going on vacation tomorrow but we saw what speaker bayner said, suggesting the president was concerned about saving face than defending the programs. >> that's right. look, i mean, this is kind of the one issue or few issues, i should say where republicans are supportive of the president. this nsa program they say has been helpful and they have been kind of his biggest cheerleaders on this while the democrats, many of the democrats, as jessica was just talking to, leading liberal democratic senators have been maybe the most vocal in terms of criticism. this changed that a little bit. but one thing i would say about peter king, one of the lawmakers you were talking about, he said the president is on an apology tour. that illustrates the flight within the republican party because peter king, as you know is making noise about being president and he's trying to push the wing of the republican party that is more hockish against those on the repu
, he both -- lost both of them from both sides of the aisle. this week on "newsmakers," we had dana rohrabacher, who chairs the foreign relations committee on europe, eurasia, an emerging threat. he offered up his views on russia and the u.s. canceling that meeting between putin and obama. [video clip] it is imperative we have a good relationship with russia. yet we have this administration -- many republicans as well -- pushing russia away, still thinking about russia as it was during the cold war. this is no good for the cause of peace, and no good for us. >> russia is hosting edward snowden, who u.s. officials have said is the most damaging leaker in american history. i think what mr. snowden did, by alerting the american people to over surveillance on the part of our own government of our population, to call him a traitor -- he was being loyal to the rest of us by letting the american people know that their government was getting out of hand. host: that was congressman dana rohrabacher, republican of california. he serves as a member of the foreign affairs committee. you can see
, the wings that chris christie and rand paul represent, dana wrote a piece, rand paul rebuked on foreign aid. i don't know if you saw this. the 86-13 vote, he wanted to strip all aid to egypt. i love that he brought up oh, you know, detroit's this and we should be doing -- he wouldn't vote to give money to detroit either. >> right. he wouldn't give money to anybody. go on that side of the discussion because we're still having a discussion about who gets money. so yeah, then you can't be into the discussion. you have to have your own discussion. >> stephanie: you finished chatting amongst yourself. peter in ithaca. hi. >> caller: i think you're giving rand paul -- they're not giving him his due. i think they ripped between him and john mccain over foreign policy. mccain wants to go to war. at the drop of a hat. rand paul wants us to get out. and -- >> stephanie: rand paul wants us to do more than get out. >> excuse me? >> stephanie: rand paul wants to do more than get out. okay, that was a troll. i'm sure he had more thoughts directly from rush limbaugh. 29 minutes after the hour. back with r
: scared. dana bonano vanished about three weeks ago. her mother received that text message on the night of her daughter's disappearance and told police she received no other text explaining why her daughter was scared. still missing almost three weeks later: >>> who did the background check on ed snowden? new questions about that company, and now an entire community's future might be on the line if the company did something wrong. patti ann: plus, the feds looking into planned parenthood. what is the group doing with millions of your taxpayer dollars? [ man ] look how beautiful it is. ♪ honey, we need to talk. we do? i took the trash out. i know. and thank you so much for that. i think we should get a medicare supplement insurance plan. right now? [ male announcer ] whether you're new to medicare or not, you may know it only covers about 80% of your part b medical expenses. it's up to you to pay the difference. so think about an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare supplement insurance plans, they help c
wouldn't shut down because of a battle over health care. dana bash is watching what's going on, getting reaction to the news conference. is this really what the republicans are threatening to do, shut down the government to try to kill obama care? >> reporter: some are absolutely. i spoke with ted cruz, the republican senator for texas. he said before leaving for recess that he believes if th is the most critical, fundamental time for republicans to make good on their promise to appeal obama care by making this threat that the government is going to run out of money by the end of september and they're not going to vote on funding it unless obama care is defunded. and he's taunting fellow republicans saying they're scared, that's why they may not go his way. but they really are split. he's spending all of august with petitions and trying to push republican leaders to go forward on the strategy. but even the most fiscally conservative republicans are saying for many reasons this is not the best way to go. if you take obama care out of this, there are still questions about how republicans
of a threat. but dana lash, she is on the other side of the fence, she tweeted this. this is the same naacp who called a black man beaten by an sieu an uncle tom on tape. what do you think about it? i think we asked people for e-mails. >> brian: a lot of people saying during what president bush's time, look what bill maher and others said about him. lesley writes from florida and says any american sure the right to mock the president. he isn't our king or emperor. >> gretchen: her she will said, when did it become such a big deal to joke about the president? it's been going on throughout our history. really? investigate the clown? >> peter: and if it had been a clown with a bush or reagan mask, nobody would have said a word about it, according to dennis in ohio. charles from oklahoma, i think we should respect the office of the president whether we voted for him or not. >> gretchen: all right. that -- it's a controversial story. i think we'll have comments. >> brian: we know one thing, like it or not, there is a clown at a kinko's right now writing up a resume hoping to get another job. >>
begins at 7:00 a.m. eastern time on c-span. >> california congressman dana is our guest this week on news makers. he is the chair of the foreign photographers subcommittee. he discussion the u.s.-palestinian peace talks, russian relations and places like yemen and afghanistan. >> some people say well if we cut the military at least we won't have the temptation to go fight as much. and if the japanese want to fight over the isles against the chinese, let them do it. we are better off santiago out, and if we have a smaller military, we will be disinclined to get involved. if you look at historically when we fight and don't, i don't see a correlation of higher defense budgets and greater likelihood of intervening. the world wars began when we were unprepared. if we fast forward to the ragan years, in many years the ragan years, people can correct me if they wish afterwards or whenever, but the ragan years are still seen as the golden years of american defense policy because we billion up the budget and didn't really use the military. support that wonderful? i am not saying it was all ronald
